1.   Australian Golf Croquet Handicap Doubles  (Holders: Clare Wilson & Simon Kempson)

22-23 Sept.  Entries are limited to 16 pairs in order of receipt, but we may need an additional day (Monday 21 Oct) if entries exceed expectations so be careful booking accommodation.  Players will be allocated a partner if entering without one.  We expect play to commence in seeded blocks (up to 8 pairs per block).  Qualifying pairs will be re-seeded for the knock out phase.  Matches are single 13-point games except for knock-outs which will be best-of-3 if time permits.  Matches will start untimed, but the manager may impose a time limit if necessary.  There will be a plate event if entries justify it.

2.   Australian Golf Croquet Handicap Singles  (Holder: Peter Webb)

23-25 Oct.  Entries are limited to 32 players in order of receipt.  Depending on entries we expect play to commence in seeded blocks (up to 8 players per block).  Qualifying players will be re-seeded for the knock-out phase.  Matches will be single 13-point games except that knock-outs will be best-of-3 if time allows.  Players are expected to play up to 6 games and/or 7 rounds per day.  Matches will start untimed, but the manager may impose a time limit if necessary.  A plate will be held for players eliminated from the knock-out.

Conditions – the WCF 2022 GC Rules will be used, but we are using Advantage Play not Extra Strokes.  Detailed conditions are in the ACA Tournament Regulations & will be in the Event Program.
